Software and Tutorials developed by CVS Faculty and Labs
SPLASh (Stereotactic PLAnning Software)
Developed by Daniel Sperka and Jochen Ditterich
SPLASh is an add-on tool integrated into Caret. It is designed to aid in the placement of recording chambers to optimize access to the target area. Regions that can be accessed by a particular recording chamber placement can be shown on Caret's flat map or in the structural MRI volume. In addition, the tool allows for exploring individual electrode tracks.
Modeling Receptive Fields as Linear Filters in Space and Time
Developed by Mark Goldman
This MATLAB tutorial will show you how to build a model of the firing rate responses of a neuron in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) to a stimulus that varies over space and time. It will then show how to apply this model to understand the neural basis of a visual illusion known as “forward masking” in which a target stimulus is made to appear less visible by a previously presented “masking” stimulus.
